The official Arduino develop and team have announced the availability of the Arduino Pro IDE v0.0.6-alpha preview, allowing for the installation of third-party cores. The Arduino Pro IDE has been created to provide users with a simple, modern web app version of the Arduino IDE, with boards and libraries available directly from your browser without needing an install.
“We have developed a handy “Boards Control” feature to help you identify and configure third party boards. Try it out and give us your feedback. Highlights for this release include: Support for third party cores, UX improvements and Bugfixes.”
